Van Gogh Tattoo’s “Art to Music” Fundraiser Benefits Blessings in a Backpack Grand Ledge

We owe a big thank you to Van Gogh Tattoos in Grand Ledge organizing the “Art to Music” fundraiser on June 26 at Sanctuary Spirits.Four talented artists made art while the guests drank artisanal wine/spirits, ate barbeque, participated in a raffle, and listened to music. These four paintings are being silent auctioned and all proceeds will be donated to Blessings in a Backpack Grand Ledge, thanks to artists Ian Wallace, Sarah Fuller, Boris Gustav and Mat Grambau. Sanctuary Spirits graciously donated the event space for Art to Music. Stop by Sanctuary Spirits at 902 E. Saginaw (east of M100 on the north side of the street) and place your bid before July 4, 2015, at 4 pm. They are open Tues/Weds from 4-8; Thurs/Fri from 4-9; and 12-9 Saturdays.

We Put the Fun in Fundraising!

Blessings in a Backpack Grand Ledge works hard to ensure that the needy children in the Grand Ledge area have food to eat on the weekends during the school year, but we are always up for fun, too. Check out the pictures and video of two recent events held as fundraisers for us. Thanks to these great organizations providing us with sponsorship-level donations, the needy children of Grand Ledge will have weekend food during the 2015-16 school year.

More fun is on the way! Join us at the upcoming “Art to Music” fundraiser that Van Gogh Tattoos is hosting for us at Sanctuary Spirits on June 26 from 6-9 pm.
